There have been sightings of coyotes in certain areas of the town and currently are more common due to the lack of availability of prey. Please consider keeping your cats indoors and do not leave your dogs outside unattended. If you wish to report that a wild animal is wandering near humans and you believe it may be diseased or rabid, contact State Police at 518-583-7000 or the Saratoga County Sheriff’s Office at 518-885-6761 immediately. Police will respond to the incident and will contact the town’s Animal Control Office, which is on call 24 hours a day.
For more information on wild animals, you can call the Department of Environmental Conservation at 518-623‐1200 or 518-897‐1326 and ask for a wildlife specialist. As always, town residents are encouraged to contact my office at 518-371‐6651 with questions.
